Juan Antonio
View original language description ↓
Juan R. is a native of the city of León in Nicaragua and he lives in the municipality of El Sauce. This is where he has his ranching business which allows him to support his family and provide for all the needs of his home.

Today Juan faces an urgent need to buy calves to raise. Because he does not have the economic means at this moment, he is requesting a loan from Ceprodel so he can purchase the cattle. He will be able to take full advantage of this purchase and commercialize them at the right time. He has had a total of 4 loans with CEPRODEL, all paid on time in accordance with their terms.

Translated from Spanish by Molly Puglisi, Kiva volunteer.
